Messy love triangles that you’ll want to root for

It’s love, actually! Everyone enjoys a complex love story, and in this post we are totally here to deliver on that. 

We look at 3 popular Asian dramas that focus on love, and how it shapes the protagonists.

1. Love At First Sight

From friends to lovers, this is a slow-burn story about two friends who made a promise to continue their education abroad together. One of them was unable to make it, and they slowly grew apart from each other.

4 Years later, they meet again and they try to rekindle their friendship… or is there something more beyond this platonic relationship?

2. Love Under The Moon
